  1. The dress looks European. Love the sleeves

    • You could be correct about the dress being of European design, but wherever it was made, its fine details indicate that this young lady comes from an affluent family–the dress is in the height of elegance and good taste–and yes, the sleeves are remarkably fine. Her expression projects supreme self-confidence; notice the slightly elevated eyebrow–is she amused or slightly haughty? It’s an outstanding photographic portrait.
